Screenshots of PDF DRM Copyright Protection Software
The following screenshots show you the complete set of dialogs for protecting PDF documents, administrating users, and viewing secure PDF files.
Protecting PDF Files
Protecting PDF documents: Highlight your PDF files in Windows File Explorer, right-click and select 'Make secure PDF'.
The following tabbed dialog is then displayed:
Customization: This is where you customize each protected PDF document with your own splash screen and viewer branding image.
Messages: Here you can enter custom messages or web pages that are displayed on unauthorized use, on or before expiry, and when a user first opens a protected document.
Document Access: This is where you decide how protected PDF documents are made available to users.
Expiry and Validity: Here you select when your protected PDF documents expire (if ever), and the frequency with which checks have to be made with the server to validate access. By enforcing document access validation you can instantly revoke documents.
Environment Controls: Here you select various controls that determine what environment the Secure PDF Viewer software will run in.
Printing and Viewing: Here you select whether users can print and view your protected PDF documents, and if so, how many times. You can log document views and prints, and even prevent document access once the number of prints have been used.
Watermarks when viewing: Here you select whether watermarks are displayed on your protected PDF documents when they are viewed. System variables - user name, company name, email address, date/time stamp - can be dynamically displayed. Both text and image watermarks are supported.
Watermarks when printing: Here you select whether watermarks are printed on your protected PDF documents. Both text and image watermarks can be printed. System variables - user name, company name, email address, date/time stamp - can be dynamically applied when printing occurs.
Display Settings: Here you select how you want your protected PDF document to be displayed in the Secure PDF Viewer and whether you want to enforce those settings or allow the user to change them.
Locking PDF Documents to USB
PDF USB Security: Add your protected PDF files and the Secure PDF Viewer to a USB device so users can use them instantly without having to install or register any software.
PDF Security Administration System
Customers: This is where you create and edit user accounts. This includes the ability to manage document and publication access for individual or multiple users.
Publications: This is where you add and manage publications. You can also view the users and documents associated with each publication.
Documents: This is where you manage protected PDF document records and see the controls you applied to them. You can also view the users who have access to each protected PDF document and grant or deny access.
Reports and Statistics: This is where you can see statistics, generate reports, and view system log files.
Settings: This is where you can review and change email settings and control how license information is delivered to users.
User Registration (License Activation)
A license file email is automatically created for each user when you set up an account for them. Users install the Secure PDF Viewer software and register with you so they can view protected PDF documents. They can receive a license file by email, either as an attachment or as a server link. The default email sent out looks like this:
Alternatively, the Secure PDF Viewer and protected PDF documents can be distributed on USB with Safeguard PDF Portable and no registration or Internet connection is required.
Viewing Secure PDF Files
Double-click on a protected PDF file in Windows file explorer for it to display in the Secure PDF Viewer.
PDF document controls are enforced by Enterprise PDF Security and cannot be circumvented. Details of when the user account expires and when the PDF document expires (if at all) are displayed at the bottom of the Secure PDF Viewer.
